Preservation Champions are men and women of all ages and backgrounds — including authors, activists, journalists, philanthropists and public servants — who have gone above and beyond in their support for America’s battlefields. They are the sentries of history who have distinguished themselves in safeguarding the hallowed grounds on which is written the story of our nation, from the early battles of the Revolution through the crucible of the Civil War.
